Pigs, Sheep And Wolves « See All Songs

Lyrics:

Big and fat
Pig’s supposed to look like that
Barnyard thug
Sleeps on straw and he calls it a rug
Yeah, that’s a rug, okay
He’s walking down the street
And nobody’s gonna argue with him
He’s a half a ton of pig meat

Up in the hills above the farm
Lives a pack of wolves
Never did no harm
Sleep all day
Hunt till four
Maybe catch a couple of rodents
You know, carnivore

Sheep in the meadow
Nibbling on some clover
One of the sheep wanders over
Sits by a rock
Separated from the flock
He’s just sitting by a rock

Where’d he go?
I don’t know
Well, he was here a minute ago
I don’t know
Sheep’s dead
Got a gash as big as a wolf’s head
Oh, God

Big and fat
Pig’s supposed to look like that
Wallowing in lanolin
He’s rubbing it into his pigskin
Police going crazy
Say, let’s get him
Let’s get that wolf
Let’s get him
Let’s get that wolf
Let’s get him
Let’s kill him, let’s get him
Let’s kill him

Court-appointed lawyer wasn’t very bright
Oh, maybe he was bright
Maybe it was just a late night
Yeah, it was just a late night
And he files some feeble appeal
And the governor says, “Forget it
It’s a done deal
It’s election, I don’t care, election
Let’s give that wolf a lethal injection”
Let’s get him, yeah, let’s get that wolf,
Let’s kill him, let’s get him
Let’s kill him, let’s get him, kill him
Let’s get him and kill him

Whew, slow
Here comes the media
With their camera
Asking everyone’s opinion
About pigs, sheep and wolves

Big and fat
Pig’s supposed to laugh like that
“This is hilarious
What a great time
I’m the pig who committed
The perfect crime”

All around the world
France and Scandinavia
Candlelight vigils
Protesting this behavior
It’s animal behavior
Animal behavior
It’s pigs, sheep and wolves
Pigs, sheep and wolves
Pigs, sheep and wolves
It’s animal behavior
It’s pigs, sheep and wolves
